Customer-friendly features include seats with extended leather headrests, piping and sports trim, armrests and automatic de-recline; seat back tables, magazine nets and fixed footrests; a pair of TV monitors, a smart audio system with Bluetooth, USB sockets on all seats, and onboard wi-fi.

“There’s no better way to mark our 100th anniversary than by taking delivery of two very high-quality coaches for our passengers,” says Managing Director of West Coast Motors, Colin Craig. “We are proud of our company’s rich history and look forward to introducing these new coaches to our many customers.”

Adds ADL Sales Account Manager Charlie Miller: “We’d like to congratulate West Coast Motors on its continued business success, and we are delighted to be able to help it celebrate such a fantastic milestone by providing these two high-specification coaches. We look forward to working with the team further in the future.”
